I have been blessed this week. My parents have taken Adriana 2 days so I could pack/relax and get some errands run. The other day I was here packing and saw Zoe all fired up about something. Well, one of the cats that she as gotten in a fight with before, was on the deck and that cat and Zoe was having a stare down. I grabbed my camera to catch on tape how crazy Zoe sounds when she sees another cat, however as soon as I turned it on that cat pawed at Zoe through the door and Zoe sounds really crazy. Unfortunately, I ran out of room on my memory card, so its only about 3 seconds long. Anyway, when Adriana got home that evening, I showed the video to her and she thought it was the funniest thing. She kept playing it over and over again. She was laughing and then mimicking Zoe's sound that she made. It was pretty funny. Zoe doesn't find humor in her misfortune, but Adriana does.

We have a lot still to get done before the move. Ryan worked on the garage and getting it all packed up and somewhat organized this last weekend so that helped a lot, but my oh my, is there ever a ton more left to do. I know it will get done, and I'm hoping the builder will give us a couple of days to slowly move in, but I don't know that for sure.
Hope all is well with everyone. I know school is starting back up for many kids, Adriana goes back in a couple of weeks, we are both looking forward to that. Have a great day and get out there and enjoy whats left of summer!

The baby is due in about 12 weeks, and I know that will be here and gone before we know it. My next appointment is in 2 weeks. My goal: not to gain more than 2lbs. Yeah right!

Other than the stress of packing and hoping our loan goes through (which we won't know for a couple of weeks), we have been doing good. We've mainly just been hanging out around the house lately. We had our garage sale this last weekend and did pretty good. We didn't really have any big stuff to get rid of (except a TV, which we still have). Mainly sold all Adriana's baby clothes. Its was really sad and hard for me to get rid of stuff. For some reason, I tend to "mark up" the price of the clothes that I really liked and put a quarter on stuff I didn't really care about. Isn't it funny how we put higher prices on things that mean more to us? I still had TON of clothes and shoes left over, so I'm trying to take them to resale stores to see if I can get a little extra cash that way.
I'm at less than 100 days until baby #2 comes. That blows my mind, because it will be here before you know it. He's a busy little fellow, he moves and kicks a lot. Of course, every time I call Ryan over to feel him move, he stops. Same thing happened when I was pregnant with Adriana.
Speaking of Adriana, I took her to her first movie theater experience today. During the summer a local movie theater puts on free movies on Wed and Thurs. for little kids. This is the last week, and the first time we've done it. I wasn't wild about taking her to the movie that was playing, "Happy Feet". I think she had a good time, she just got bored REAL quick with it and only lasted about 30 minutes, which I knew that would happen. It was free, so I didn't mind. I think she liked watching the movie on the big screen and seeing all the other boys and girls there. I also made it special by bringing candy and a soda for her (which isn't something she gets a whole lot of.).
Well, I guess I have put off long enough what needs to be done, PACKING! If anyone wants to come over and pack, don't hesitate. I know its a hobby for a lot of you out there! If you pack, I'll cook! :)

My Thoughts Before Kids (BK):
"Get in, Get out, flush with my foot and touch as little as possible"
My thoughts Now:
(Now that we are potty training, Adriana thinks she needs to go into every restroom.) "Why does she insist on putting her hands all over the toilet seat, touching the handle to flush, and pretty much making sure she touches every surface in the place? So gross!"
"Why do my parents worry so much about me? Don't they know I'm fine?"
"I hope Adriana is warm enough, while she is sleeping. Is she getting enough to eat? How is she doing with me not there with her at school?, Is she getting a cold or just allergies?..."
Okay, Mom and Dad, I understand now why you worried so much.
Kids Screaming in the Store
"Why can't you control your kid? Just take them out back and teach them a thing or two. My kid will never act like that!"
"Yes, that's my kid crying for no reason in the middle of Wal-Mart, so why are you staring at me?"
There are many daily activities and behaviors that open my eyes to what every parent goes through. Its a challenge everyday, especially with a 2 year old. Somehow we all get through these experiences and hopefully it makes us better parents and in return we can make our children better.
